How do I ‘read’ a youtube video from a terminal? Lol.

I don’t think you can, you’ll have to watch it on your phone ODL :smiley:

I listened to it in the background the other day and it was a nice interview (also cool that Michele got to hear of Gleam via the Elixir Forum :sunglasses:). You’d probably find it quite interesting ODL - Louis mentions a couple of books that he recommends for anyone interested in creating a language (I will cross post them some point as the topic has come up before I am sure) and he also said the Gleam compiler was rewritten in… Rust!

I also wish I could grow a moustache like @lpil’s!

I thought it was written in Rust right from the start.

I might have misheard, but I’m sure he said he started building it in Erlang first…
